It's official. Bel bambino is now Australian! We received a lovely certificate in the post the other day and now we have to get him a passport. We need to apply in person at the Australian Embassy in Rome so we have decided to make a little holiday out of it and go up to Rome for 2 nights next weekend. I must say that when bel bambino heard the news he was very excited!
We haven't yet completed the Australian migration application. The form itself is not so long, but the evidence required is. We need proof of everything, joint finances, proof that the relationship is genuine such as photos, love letters, cards, joint travel, proof of income for me to be bel marito's sponser, we're printing off old emails, bank statements payslips, residency certificates, birth certificates....gosh, the application is about 1cm thick at the moment and growing. Hopefully once we have some of our house documents finalised we can apply.
